Edmond Bozanier Marmillion began building his plantation mansion in 1853 for his two sons, Valsin and Charles.  The Mansion was completed just before the death of Edmond in 1856.  Valsin Marmillion took over the plantation and moved into the mansion with his wife and children.  The Plantation was sold in 1879 to Archille D. Bougere for $55,000.  The name was derived from the French expression “sans fruscins” (without a penny in my pocket) and became known as St. Frusquin, and then in 1879 the name was changed to San Francisco.  In the 1930’s, the luscious front yard and gardens were sacrificed to make way for the new Levee.  Marathon Oil and the San Francisco Foundation took ownership of the plantation house and a massive restoration began.
